[texts]10. Path Dependecy.full
This paper explains why firms have difficulties to implement management practices with the lens of path dependency theory (PDT).PDT assumes that past decisions restrain present and future choices. This paper explains thethree stages of path dependency: increasing selectivity, positive feedbacks, and path dependence. Furthermore, this paper suggest show organizations overcome their path dependence while implementing and adopting management practices.
Keywords: Path Dependence; Organizational Change; and Organizational Practices

[audio]MIT 16.01 Unified Engineering I, II, III, & IV, Fall 2005 - MIT OpenCourseWare
The basic objective of Unified Engineering is to give a solid understanding of the fundamental disciplines of aerospace engineering, as well as their interrelationships and applications. These disciplines are Materials and Structures (M); Computers and Programming (C); Fluid Mechanics (F); Thermodynamics (T); Propulsion (P); and Signals and Systems (S). In choosing to teach these subjects in a unified manner, the instructors seek to explain the common intellectual threads in these disciplines, a...
